The Art of Being Human: Shambhala Training Level One

with Orhun Cercel
January 26 / 9:00 AM - January 27 / 6:30 PM

'The way of the Great Eastern Sun is based on seeing that there is a natural source of radiance and brilliance in the world, which is the innate wakefulness of human beings.'Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

The Shambhala Training path of study and practice begins with the Heart of Warriorship programme. This consists of five weekend programmes ("levels") which offer meditation instruction and practice, talks on the Shambhala teachings, group discussions and interviews.

Completing the Heart of Warriorship provides the tools you need to establish a personal meditation discipline and take the basic principles of warriorship forward into your daily life. Level One introduces the rich Shambhala tradition, which inspires and encourages us to explore and celebrate what it is to be human.

During the weekend we begin to work with the practice of meditation which allows this gentle exploration to take place. Level One offers both a good introduction for complete beginners and a fresh inspiration for those who may already have some experience of meditation within their own spiritual traditions.
